Abstract

We evaluated an alternative diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) acquisition for prostate magnetic resonance imaging of men with pelvic hardware, using radial k-space sampling (MultiVane [MV]), short-tau inversion-recovery (STIR) fat suppression, and split acquisition of turbo spin-echo signals. The optimized STIR-MV-DWI reduced metal-associated artifacts and image distortion, and aided in visualization of the prostate and lesions. The STIR-MV-DWI can be a valuable adjunct in prostate magnetic resonance imaging of men with pelvic hardware, among whom the conventional echo-planar DWI is compromised.
